I have a sony minidv camera that i use every now and then and when i had VAIO laptop it was easy to edit the vids as the software was pre installed. Recently I went to a Dell Laptop and have no video editing software on there. I am looking for recommendations on free or very inexpensive video editing software out there that will do what i need.

I only need very basic stuff such as, import clips from the camera, crop out scenes, make smaller clips from the main video. I dont need fancy fade in or out, sound editing or fancy trailer stuff..just basics...

what do you all recommened?

thanks in advance

This one is free.

I haven't used it. I run Linux.

Windows Movie Maker will do just that and it's included with XP (and I'm sure other Windows flavors).

If you ever need more advanced editing, I highly recommend Sony Vegas (high-end) or Sony Vegas Movie Studio (personal).

You might check and see if there are software updates for the software you have tried. I have had similar problems in the past and typically that helps.

I am a BIG Roxio fan. You get a lot of software for $99 IMHO.
